Not really, I'm running Win2K Pro here on a 'standard' system with half a
gig of RAM which requires me to have a gig's worth of pagefile. Why? Surely
half a gig is enough memory to have all my running processes in memory at
the same time, even if they're inactive? According to the task manager I've
got 210mb 'free', so everything that's running now should stay running and
not get swapped out, but it does.
